/ Bulk buy rock boots
does anyone have a rough idea how much they cost?
ballpark would be great.
I think there are rather too many variables here to help. I'm not a purchasing professional but would expect a 10-20% discount for bulk buy off the Net cost. Presumably you are putting together a business case cost approximation to compare with the return on that investment for a climbing wall? If so I'd suggest that you put in a budget for this as its a trivial cost relative to that of putting up the wall in the first place. You can maximise the number of shoes you get for that budget when the time comes to buy them.
If on the other hand the shoes are the main element of the business then you'd be best off ringing the salesmen at the shoe distributors for some quotes. However Quotes will only be respected for 30 days and lots can happen to costs over timescales of a month or two ....
try direct to Lyon equipment, DMM as a starter for 10
it's not a business, or a public wall. but we just need 30ish pairs of bots in varying sizes for regular use.
how many feet do you have !!!!!
The ones I know about:
Beyond Hope import Evolv - http://beyondhope.co.uk/contact-us/
Lyon Equipment import Sportiva - http://lyon.co.uk/outdoor/contact-lyon-outdoor
DMM (own range Gym Shoes http://dmmclimbing.com/products/gym-shoes/ ) - http://dmmclimbing.com/about/contact-us/
In a similar situation we bought these for a kids wall
sizes fit a size down from normal shoe size ie buy one size bigger than you normal shoe,
also decathlon have cheap shoes. http://www.decathlon.co.uk/F-50625-climbing-shoes
but you will probably get a deal from a manufacturer for 30 as previously posted.
A cheap pair is about £50, so you could budget £40-50. I'd be pretty confident you'd get 30 pairs for £1200-£1500.
You could get much less if a wholesaler was interested.
